The drinks are good but the ambience is amazing. The animals hidden so discreetly slightly move but not in a scary way. There is a thunderstorm every 20 minutes my 6yr old loved it but my 3 yr old was freaked out slightly. Definitely a...More

The food isn't the best, the wait for the ambience is often ridiculous and I have not found the staff super friendly.

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy
